    I had to shorten the veil by an inch or so, but otherwise it is good to go

    I have been working on this on and off for a while and I've finally got it to a point where it's about ready to submit. I did both versions of the underdress and veil

    I took a look at the fabric at Walmart and found a few options. They are cotton so not as soft as I wanted but still might work. The one on the right is what I'm leaning towards Here are a few more, the one on the right is the same one from above

    Would the middle darker fabric color work? I didn't like the fabric texture, but if the color is right I will use that as a reference for other textures

    I wondered that, here is some material I had at home. It looks totally different in natural light versus inside light. The lighter red fabric is some I have that I thought about using for the belt. The black fabric was pleather type fabric

    I am starting my visas build of the unseen unheard version, would one of these colors work for the inner dress/headpiece, and the outer dress? In the light In the shadow Another option Here's a jersey knit, ok color but not sure on the fabric

    My son likes this costume, so I made it for him to troop in with me. He is not eligible for 501st yet, but I wanted to post it for feedback. I've got some other tweaks I want to make to it but it's a good start. He loved getting this picture some source references: 1.
